Best 2013 Cars for Tall People

Drivers and their passengers who are six feet tall or greater know that it’s not much fun trying to cram their height into many cars that otherwise fit all their needs. Style, fuel economy, safety features and amenities may not be enough to compensate for having to hunch over or have your head grazing the roof liner. In addition, if legroom isn’t sufficient for those whose height is more in the legs than the torso, the car simply won’t do.

The solution, if you’re in the market for a new vehicle, is to check out the cars with good headroom and leg room, as well as those offering adjustable seat travel and height, longer seat cushions, adjustable pedals, and tilt and telescoping steering wheels. Which are the best 2013 cars for tall people? Check out these six.

tight.” About that rear seat Cars.com observes that, “Even with the front seat positioned for a 6-foot-tall driver, there’s enough space in back for a 6-foot-tall passenger to ride comfortably.”
